Ragged Branch Bottled in Bond Virginia Straight Rye Whiskey
2022 San Francisco World Spirits Double Gold Medal Winner
A unique contrast to their bourbons, this straight rye is bold and spicy with layers of dried fruit on the nose. The flavor is surprisingly round with some sweet tobacco, almond, dried cherries and raisins. Bottled in bond.

The legendary Master Distiller and friend, Dave Pickerell, developed the foundation of their bourbon process – their mash. Every drop of their bourbon comes from their own grain – milled and mashed-in daily – and distilled under the direction Dave bestowed upon them.
Ragged Branch’s mission of creating excellent, independently handcrafted bourbon while adhering to the time honored traditions and distilling processes is reflected in every sip. Grab a bottle and taste for yourself.
Known for its peppery, spicy bite, Rye serves as the ideal base for cocktails like the Sazerac, Manhattan or Old Fashioned. In order for a spirit to be labeled an American Rye Whiskey, the mash bill must be comprised of at least 51% rye grain. The remainder of the mash is most often a combination of malted barley, wheat or corn. After distillation is complete, the spirit is transferred to unused, charred white oak barrels for a minimum of two years, though many producers choose to age longer.
